Doctrinal Basis 基本教義

The Church accepts the Bible (containing the old and new testaments only) as the authoritative word of God.

教會接受聖經 (只包括舊約和新約) 是神權威的話語。

We believe and maintain the following 我們相信及持守以下:

  • The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the God-head.
  •  三位一體是聖父、聖子及聖靈三個位格。
  • The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  •  上帝在創造,啓示,救贖和最後審判有主權。
  • The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written were inspired of God, hence free from error. They constitute the only infallible guide in faith and practice.
  •  聖經的六十六卷正典是神所默示,正確無誤。這些書卷構成絶對可靠的信心和操練指引。
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the Fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  •  始祖犯罪,世界墮落和人類的罪性,致使世人落入上帝的憤怒和定罪中。
  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ (as our representative and substitute,) the incarnate Son of God.
  •  唯有藉著道成肉身的神子,透過耶穌基督的死 (成為人類的代表和替代 品),我們才能在罪裡,懲罰及罪的力量中得救贖。
  • The physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and His ascension to the right hand of the throne of God the Father.
  •  耶穌基督的身體從死裡復活,祂升天坐在父神寶座的右邊。
  • The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting him repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ.
  •  聖靈的工作,使個別罪人承認基督的死亡可以有效拯救他們,藉著認罪悔過,歸向神和建立在耶穌基督裡的信心。
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  •  聖靈內住及在每個信徒生命中工作。
  • The one holy universal church, which is the body of Christ and to which all true believers belong.
  •  唯一的大公聖潔教會就是基督的身體,是屬於所有真信徒。
  • The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  •  每個信徒期盼主耶穌基督的再來。
  • The resurrection of all believers and eternal life for all who truly trust and believe in Him.
  •  所有真心相信基督的信徒將會復活及進入永生。
